How To Keep Your Newborn’s Skin Super Hydrated This Summer

How To Keep Your Newborn’s Skin Super Hydrated This Summer

Just as the winter season can be harsh on a newborn’s skin, so can the summer season. The dryness of the air is rather unforgiving on a baby’s delicate skin and can rob it off all its moisture, leaving it parched and dry. Since the summer season has already begun, I’ve been noticing my baby girl’s soft
skin losing its smoothness and feeling rougher than ever, especially in the high-stress areas like elbows and knees.

My regular lotion didn’t help combat the problem, which left me in a fix as I didn’t have the time to resort to home remedies and needed something quickly. Something that was intensely moisturizing without being too strong on my baby’s elbows and knees. So I put my research cap on and got to work to find out ingredients that a baby cream should have in order to be moisturizing and safe for use on such areas.

In my hours of research, I found something really interesting. I discovered that it’s not just the ingredients that make a difference in the suitability and safety of baby cream. The pH level of the product matters just as much. Probably even more as products with the wrong pH level can have a damaging effect on a baby’s tender skin.

Now you might wonder why is pH level important? I wondered the same and dug deeper into the skin’s pH level to find out why. I learned that the pH level of the skin can be defined as its acidity or alkalinity, which ranges from a level 0 to 14. Levels 0 to 7 indicate acidity, while 8 to 14 denote
alkalinity. 7 is considered to be a neutral pH (1).



pH neutral products are quite common and branded as gentle so I thought that’s what I needed in my daughter’s baby cream. But I found out that neutral pH is actually not good for my daughter’s skin, or any baby’s for that matter. The baby's skin’s ideal pH level is 5.5, which is what keeps the
skin healthy, radiant and protected from infections (2). A neutral pH product or that with a lower or higher pH level than 5.5 can disrupt skin health. And that’s definitely something I didn’t want my princess’ delicate and dry skin to go through. Especially in this harsh summer season.

So after trying many baby creams, I settled for the Baby Sebamed Cream Extra Soft. I had been meaning to try out the baby care range of this German brand for a while as its products have been developed by dermatologists. And they also have the ideal pH level of 5.5.

How To Keep Your Newborn’s Skin Super Hydrated This Summer

If you ask me about my experience with the Baby Sebamed Cream Extra Soft, it has been a positive one so far. I’m into a month of using this cream on my baby’s elbows and knees and a very little
quantity of the tube has depleted so far. In my opinion, that’s awesome as this cream is a little expensive – Rs. 637/- for a 200ml tube!

The Baby Sebamed Cream Extra Soft has a very thick consistency so I have to be careful of not applying too much as it can get greasy. A small quantity, however, suffices and moisturizes my baby’s skin really well! There have been no instances of dryness or even rashes for that matter since
I started using this cream. And my baby’s knees and elbows seem to be retaining its smoothness and glow! This makes me believe that the Baby Sebamed Extra Soft cream might also be quite suitable
for babies when they start crawling.

Overall, I really like the Baby Sebamed Cream Extra soft and its mild aroma. I’ll continue using it and would suggest other mommies try it out too on their babies. I hope this article helped you learn a
thing or two about hydrating your baby’s elbows and knees this summer season!

Xoxo... 😊
